Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2009
On tap at Plan b, 22 years old. Hazy red brown body with a forever lasting off white head. Aroma is sweet raspberries almost syrup like, with slight notes of malt and wood. The flavor is dry, tart and lovely. At first sour raspberries hits the tongue then a dim taste of wood joins in, very smooth and balanced with a long and pleasant aftertaste of raspberries. Simply astonishing of an brew this old !!

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2009
Small sample from Plan/B , Copenhagen who had a single keg of this. Though the sample was very little I remember the taste and feel quite well. Extremely muddy orange with a small white head. Lots of wood with sour and fresh raspberries. Some caramel, fruit and a good deal of tartness and oak. Smooth and medium palate. Amazingly fresh and top notch considering this is probably 20 years old.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2009 89’ Hazy orange with a medium off white head. Draft. Sour raspberries hits the nose along with wood, hay and candy drops. Flavour was quite tart with raspberries, lemons, barnyard, wood and leather. Finished deliciously tart. Very fresh raspberries despite the age. Absolutely amazing!

Bottle into tulip. 1989 vintage. Crazy-ass lambic tasting in our hotel room, GABF 2007. Thanks to cquiroga for bringing this one. Dusting of white on top of a glowing ruby orange in the glass. Smell is warm and jammy, with raspberries. On the first sip, I have pictured in my mind raspberries being eaten in slow-mo and sepia tone: it’s not bright and full, mellowed, but very nicely realized. This is balanced by earthy things: twigs, dust, and dirt, all fibrous and dark under the medium and somewhat watery body. Finish lingers a small bit, but there’s not much there. Definitely oxidized a bit on the end, but I don’t mind it much.

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm 1989 Vintage. Red color with creamy head. Sweet, juicy, acidic and perfumed aroma with notes of raspberry and rose. Sweetish, juicy and acidic flavor with nice fresh raspberry touch. Very balanced, excellent.

From a 375mL Bottle, 1989 Vintage. Generously shared by cquiroga. Slightly hazy, even color of golden, ruddy caramels with a thin layer of soapy, off-white head. Big, sweet and juicy raspberry nose that’s amazingly bright for the age. A bit jammy and thick, with an interesting anise spice complexity. Malty nose of vanilla and caramel add richness to the incredibly smooth, supple fruit nose. The aroma actually reminds me a lot of KRE. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated mouthfeel. Sweet raspberry flavors up front on the palate, by some caramel and vanilla malt richness. A mild acidity and gentle vinous tartness is present, but restrained compared to the fruit qualities. Some herbal raspberry seeds linger in the finish, along with more of the vanilla, malty sweetness. Would like a bit more acidity, but the raspberry qualities are delicious and amazingly fruity for the age. Thanks for the rare treat, Chris!
